Got some primer on, now for some more fine tuning.

About an hour after the putty was applied.  

 

Next, some sanding and then primer and more PSR.

Got some putty on today.

This is the putty.  Picked it up at the local big box hardware store.  You have to work fast as it cures in just a few mins.  Also, the smell is really bad until it cures.

This was the first rough sanding about 30 mins after the putty was applied.

Right side done, easier the second time around.

Who would have thought that french curve would have come in handy.  Got one half of the hump started.

Got the bottom of the intakes closed in.  Some quality time PSRing in nthe future.

Made a little adjustment to the intakes.

Some honking big intakes.

This is where I build.  The work area is on the left and layout area on the right.  I have a piece of glass on the work area.  So, if I want a puddle of super glue or need to mix some paint, no problem, on the glass.  It is a little messier than normal.

The forward fuselage is together.

Relocated the tailhook.

The date on the decal sheet 6-88, not too bad for an old geezer.  I'll go around the edges with some black and call it good.  Oh yeah, no setting solution at all.

The wing is together and solid.  I also widen the main tires for the extra weight.

Rudder also enlarged.

Elevators enlarger, I had to add a stiffener plate.

This what I started with after a "short" break.  The spacers on the top were not even installed, After about a week I ended up with this.

Spacers install, reinforced on the inside, and the start of PSR.

Basic cockpit started.

FB4-W

What if the USAF wanted a heavy bomber?  What if McDonnell Douglas  stuffed a third engine into an F4 Phantom airframe?

Test fit.
